“Northwest AHEC has been a major factor in the library services at Wilkes Regional Medical Center. The AHEC librarian helped decide which books to use and get our first library established. The AHEC librarians are instrumental in journal and literature searches. If we have questions about a search or we need information, they are really “Johnny on the spot.” They’re right there getting us the information that we need. The AHEC Digital Library has a resource entitled Up To Date which is very helpful especially when physicians are asking for information. The nursing staff can access information by going to the AHEC Digital Library and looking in journals for current information or they can ask for a literature search or do it themselves. I just have to say that the Northwest AHEC librarians are wonderful!”
